The Baltimore Ravens have seen quarterback Lamar Jackson develop into one of the best young quarterbacks in the NFL. He’s broken countless records, won a unanimous-MVP award and most importantly has improved many of his skills since coming into the league.
In a collaborative list on ESPN where over 50 NFL players, coaches, executives and more voted on the top 10 quarterbacks in the league, Jackson was voted in at the No. 8 spot. He lost a tiebreaker to Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, where one AFC executive explained that he believes that “Lamar is a better all-around football player, Dak is the better QB.”
As for evaluations as to why Jackson was voted as the 8th-best quarterback, a veteran NFL player said that the league has figured the quarterback out a bit.
When talking about how Baltimore has handled their star player, one quarterback said that they believe Jackson can make things happen as a passer if the team would let him throw the football more.
An AFC Scout said that if the Ravens put more talent around Jackson, he can have success, even though he doesn’t believe he’s that “accurate, down-inm passer”.
There seems to be a lot of doubt surrounding Jackson on the list, even though the quarterback has led his team to a 30-7 record as a starter and has shown the ability to be a threat both as a thrower and as a runner. While there are certainly some areas of his game where Jackson can improve, being as good as he is at the age of 24 is extremely impressive. There are plenty of talented quarterbacks throughout the entire NFL, and Jackson is right up there with the best of them.
